FAMILIE OP ZEE / FAMILY AT SEE
2015

In Family at sea an old family photo is central. It is an image of Sjeng Beurskens, my grandfather’s brother, during his crossing from the Netherlands to America with the Holland Amerika Lijn.
On 6 December 1949 he departed together with his wife Jet and their two sons on the steamer ‘Nieuw Amsterdam’. The photo has inspired several works, a three-dimensional work, a video and silhouette cutouts.
